Based on a disclosure dataset collected in Guangxi, China, Dr. Guangyu Zhou, in collaboration with Dr. Xiaoming Li and Dr. Shan Qiao, has developed three HIV research manuscripts which were recently accepted by peer-reviewed journals. Two of the studies explored psychosocial mechanisms of antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence and implied potential approaches to improve medication adherence. These studies were published online in AIDS and Behavior and AIDS Care respectively. In another study, the authors confirmed that HIV symptom management self-efficacy buffered the negative effects of internalized stigma on quality of life among people living with HIV. This study was accepted by the Journal of Health Psychology and will be published online soon.
